AC/DC Power Adapter Technical Advisory
When IEEE 1394 (Firewire) devices or controllers are self-powered,
the Power LED is illuminated and the shipping group’s external DC
power adapter is not required. Use only if the Power LED is off
when the entire system is powered up. The power adaptor in the
shipping group can supply to 1394 device up to 12V 1A (12W)
through M4-200/201.
Tip: This installation advisory is highlighted to avoid power conflicts
between self-powered devices and controllers, and unnecessarily applied
external power.

1-1 Welcome, Product Description
1-2 System Requirements for Setup
Installation
Important: Please use the installation procedure below. Improper, or no
operation may result if the start-up sequence is not correctly followed.
Step 1
Carefully unpack the contents of the shipping group and Ensure no host or
peripheral equipment is powered up.
Step 2
The M4-200 Firewire repeater boxes are identical. Identify one as upstream
(or host) and downstream (or peripheral).
Step 3
Prepare a duplex LC patch cord fiber-optic cable (Multi-Mode Glass Optical
Fiber with 62.5/125 µm or 50.0/125 µm core). Attach the two LC connector
fiber cables first with no power applied to any system component as follows:
Tx (Upstream) to Rx (Downstream)
Rx (Upstream) to Tx (Downstream)
Step 6
Power on the host and peripheral equipment. At this point, there must be no
external power supplies plugged into the M4-200 upstream or downstream
boxes.
Step 7
Observe the Power Light Emitting Diode on the side of the boxes.
If the upstream box LED is illuminated, no external power supply is
required.
Likewise if the downstream box LED is illuminated, no external power
supply is required.
Step 8
If both Power LEDs are illuminated, then the Firewire link is active. Proceed
with the software bring-up on the host system. Ignore further steps
Step 9
If one or both of the upstream/downstream Power LEDs are dark, then power
down all equipment and plug in one or two Opticis power supplies.
Step 10
Power on complete system. Both upstream/downstream LEDs should be
illuminated. Proceed with host software bring-up.

Step 4
Connect the upstream box to the host computer using a copper Firewire cable
by plugging into the host computer Firewire card and the upstream box
Firewire port (either one).
Connect the downstream box to the peripheral equipment in a similar manner.
Step 1
Power off M4-200, host and peripheral equipment first. Prepare two duplex
LC patch cord fiber-optic cable (Multi-Mode Glass Optical Fiber with 62.5/125
µm or 50.0/125 µm core). Attach the four LC connector fiber cables with no
power applied to any system component as follows:
Tx (M4-200) to Rx (M4-201)
Rx (M4-200) to Tx (M4-201)
Step 5
If there are non-Opticis external power supplies to be attached, do so now.
e.g. block power supplies for laptop Firewire PC cards, downstream
appliances, etc. Do NOT attach the Opticis power supplies until instructed to
do so.

1-3 Installation
Step 2
Connect the M4-200 box to the host computer and M4-201 to the peripheral
equipment using a copper Firewire cable and attach two LC connector fiber
cables in between M4-200 and M4-201 boxes.
1-4 Installation (continued)
Step 3
If there are non-Opticis external power supplies to be attached, do so now.
e.g. block power supplies for laptop Firewire PC cards, downstream
appliances, etc. Do NOT attach the Opticis power supplies until instructed to
do so.
Figure 5 – Side View of M4-201 Repeater
Step 4
Power up the host and peripheral equipment. At this point, there must be no
external power supplies plugged into the M4-200 or M4-201 boxes.
Step 5
Observe the Power Light Emitting Diode on the side of the boxes.
If the M4-200 box LED is illuminated, no external power supply is required.
Likewise if the M4-201 box LED is illuminated, no external power supply is
required.
Step 6
If both Power LEDs are illuminated, then the Firewire link is active. Proceed
with the software bring-up on the host system. Ignore further steps
Step 7
If one or both of the M4-200/M4-201 Power LEDs are dark, then power down
all equipment and plug in one or two Opticis power supplies.
Step 8
Power up complete system. Both M4-200/M4-201 LEDs should be
illuminated. Proceed with host software bring-up.
Step 9
If you have another M4-201, follow as Step 11 and connect the duplex LC
multimode fiber cables to the next M4-201 as Step 12. The fiber connection is
accomplished between the OUT of the prior M4-201 and the IN of the next
one. You have to repeat Step 13 to 18 as many as you have.
Troubleshooting
The Power LEDs are not illuminated.
Ensure that all AC and DC plugs and jacks used by external power supplies
(both Opticis and others) are firmly connected. Ensure that power bars are
live.
No controller or driver for the peripheral device exists in the Operating
System (OS) device manager.
Reset the system. Disconnect and reconnect 1394(b) copper cables or DC
power adapters.
Check if the two fibers are properly connected. The Tx in one repeater goes
to the Rx in the other and vice-versa.
Remove the fiber cables and use a Firewire copper cable to connect the
upstream and downstream boxes by plugging in to the unused bilingual ports.
The OS device manager shows the Firewire connection, but the Firewire
peripheral does not work properly.
Ensure that the correct software device driver is loaded on the processor
platform. Direct connect the peripheral to the processor’s Firewire port to
confirm operation. Software drivers are usually available from the Internet.
Maintenance
No special maintenance is required for the optical repeater boxes and power
supplies. If not in use, insert the factory provided plug into the Tx/Rx fiber
port. Ensure that the repeaters and power modules are stored or used in a
benign environment free from liquid or dirt contamination.
There are no user serviceable parts. Refer all service and repair issues to
Opticis.
Technical Support and Service
For commercial or general product support, contact your reseller. For
technical service, contact Opticis by email techsupport@opticis.com or visit
our website at www.opticis.com
The M4-201, giving connection of a 1394 device is capable of two-way fiber
connection in forward and backward directions, which eventually makes a
daisy chain with each repeater of M4-200 at both ends.
Do NOT plug in external power to the box if the PWR LED is on
after the M4-200/201 repeater is connected to a live host or powered peripheral.
